I've searched and searched with google, played with Xeasyconfig and various modeline generation tools and I can't get any resolution to work other than 1024x768.

My pismo has a cruddy old 8MB rage128 card and 3D games run a lot faster in 640x480x16bpp than in 1024x768x24bpp. I tested under OS X Panther and can get tolerable 3D acceleration 10-15 fps in FlightGear. However, in gentoo 2.6.7 w/Xorg, I am stuck in 1024x768. Switching to 640x480 or 800x600 just scrambles the screen.

Does anyone know where MOL keeps its modeline info? molvconfig tests 640x480 and 800x600 and they both work fine.

Why doesn't Xeasyconfig work? Regardless of the resolutions I request it only outputs 1024x768 modelines.

I haven't had any luck running Xeasyconf with Xorg. It simply exits with an error window saying that Xfree wasn't found. I had just finished compiling Xorg and had run env-update and source /etc/profile, so they shouldn't have caused any problems. Wish there were some more documentation about installing Xorg on Macs, especially IBooks and Powerbooks.
